I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- “Children Don’t Always Live” by Jayson Greene is a poignant essay on loss, grief and a new kind of happiness. I can’t stop thinking about this piece. Read it, even if the title pushes you to hesitate.
- In Quartz, Amy X. Wang writes “friendship isn’t always as serendipitous as it might feel; according to new research, there are just three ways people typically structure their social lives.” She offers the reasons for this argument in the piece, An Ivy League professor says there are only three types of friendships we make. Do you agree?
- I love this piece in the Guardian by Stuart Heritage – “Don’t floss, peel veg or wash your jeans: 40 things you can stop doing right now.” I laughed out loud reading this fun essay.
- I never miss a posting by Maria Popova on Brain Pickings. It is one of my favorite sites. She provides an insightful recap of various lessons over the last decade in 10 Learnings from 10 Years of Brain Pickings.
